I have been with my boyfriend since I was 15.

I have been with my boyfriend since I was 15. Now I’m 17 and he is 21. I found out I’m pregnant about a week ago. I’m not sure how many weeks I am as yet. I think I’m about 7-8 weeks though. Well, let me get to the point. When I told my boyfriend that I’m pregnant all he said was so? I thought, 'ok, that went well' but then two days after, I brought up the topic that I’m so young and I’m not ready yet to be a mom but I’m not getting rid of it. That’s when he changed into someone I don’t know. He said to me to get rid of it or else. He goes on and on saying he is not ready for another child. (He has a 1yr old) and when I told him abortion is not an option for me, he threatened me. At this point I knew that this was it. I didn’t want anything more to do with him. I even told him that he doesn’t have to be there because I know my mom will be there for me as I already told her. To this day I have not phoned him and he has not phoned me. It’s been two days. I’m keeping my baby no matter what he or his parents say. I’m against abortion 100%. I love this baby already and I will continue no matter how much he threatens me and comes to my house.
